Amber : from antiquity to eternity

Rachel King (Author)
"A history of human engagement with amber across three millennia. The book vividly describes our conceptions, stories, and political and scholarly disputes about amber, as well as issues of national and personal identity, religion, art, literature, music and science. Rachel King rewrites amber’s history for the twenty-first century, tackling thorny ethical and moral questions regarding humanity’s relationship with amber in the past, as well our connection with it today. With Earth facing unprecedented challenges, amber – the natural time capsule, and preserver of key information about the planet’s evolutional history – promises to offer invaluable insights into what comes next"-- Provided by publisher
